Dasna (Ghaziabad) [India], October 12 (ANI): The jailor of Dasna Jail, Dr Maurya on Thursday informed that Rajesh and Nupur Talwar breathed a sigh of relief post Allahabad High Court acquitted them.
Speaking to ANI, Maurya said, “They both got the information through news that they have been acquitted. They are very happy and said that they have got justice. We don’t know when the copy of the verdict will reach the jail but as soon as we get the copy we will follow the verdict of the High Court. There was a bit of anxiety and stress as it was a big day but now they are relaxed”.
The Allahabad High Court acquitted the parents of Aarushi Talwar , setting aside the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) court’s earlier order.
A special CBI Judge, S. Lal, had earlier held Aarushi’s parents, Rajesh and Nupur Talwar, guilty of conspiracy and murder of 14-year-old Aarushi and domestic help Hemraj.
The order, however, failed to bring a closure to the case and the public opinion remained divided, even after years of the conviction.
A High Court bench, comprising Justice B.K. Narayana and Justice A.K. Mishra, had reserved its verdict, in September, in the appeal filed by Aarushi’s parents, who were sentenced to life in jail. (ANI)
